About $30+tip. Catfish was great. Gave us all the hush puppies you wanted, nice & hot. Salad bar was good & good selection. Wait staff was friendly & returned to check on us many times. Only con is you pay when you order & are told to leave tip (if charging) then & I’m old-fashion and believe tip is earned for service...so left cash tip on table...not good if you planned to charge whole ticket....highly recommend!!

It is a little pricey, but delicious. The best time to go is during lunchtime for the all you can eat buffet

This is the best catfish place in Ruston. Nice basic menu from which you order when you enter. We had grilled catfish and fried shrimp, and both were excellent. Scott's does a lot of take-out business, so the restaurant is quiet, compared to other popular eateries in Ruston. It's a little way out of the main part of town, but easy to find. It's well worth a stop!

Julie, thank you for stating what we hope others discover: Great catfish in a nice location, even if it is a little farther out. Hwy 33, just 1.5 miles from the Interstate, but worth the drive. Hope to see you again soon!

I have only been to Scotts on Sunday afternoons. They are a good place to do a quick in and out after church on Sunday. Not sure about other times of the week.

On Sunday, they offer a buffet as part of their meal options that is open until 3 PM. They have a salad bar and hot food bar with usually two meat options, several vegetables options and a really good peach cobbler. Their catfish fillets are the thin and crispy kind and they do a very good job on the catfish. The rest is your average buffet fair, but it is a good value for the price.

The staff is pleasant and they have a very well maintained and clean restaurant. I would recommend.

Very seldom does Scott's disappont us. There is are fried, grilled, boiled and broiled seafood options and good vegetables on the side..my favorite i the new potato salad. Most of the people working here have been helpful and pleasant. They are accomodating with special oders. They have above average desserts and the price won't break the bank. Drive-thru, buffet or menu..we've had good results with all three.
